    Are there any really big sites that are based on sitefinity? Sites with 1mil+ users (maybe 10k on the site simultaneously) ? Multiple sitefinity instances on the front end? In that vein, does sitefinity scale horizontally or does it depend on the database running on bigger iron?

    thanks

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for your question.

    The largest project we currently know has about 20.000 users in the system and about 80.000 news articles. The users implementation is inherited directly by Asp.Net, and there is no upper limit. To the question about the number of the online users at the same time - you should really have several servers in load-balanced environment, and yes, Sitefinity depends on the database server hardware. We know a case with several thousands users online at the same time, with two front end servers and one database server, but the caching is enabled on the content items.

    This is pretty interesting scenario for us. Please, do let us know if you find something, or reach higher limits.

    Kind regards,
    Georgi

    Georgi:

    I came across this thread while searching for another answer to a "big site" issue - we have launched a large corporate site that has three blog areas allowing comments, using the built-in blog module with comment moderation turned ON in Sitefinity.

    We're anticipating a large number of comments (25,000+) tied into a promotion we're running. Is there any limit (or at least a ballpark) on the maximum number of comments a blog post can receive? Would a large number of comments on one post cause any issues with database bloat and/or performance?

    thanks,
    -Jeff

    Hi Jeffrey,

    I preformed a test with 25000 comments on a local project and I could confirm that Sitefinity 3.7 SP1 could handle them. There is small performance impact - about 5-6 seconds when you open the comments from the backend.

    Hi

    Are you guys talking about the perforance issues regarding Sitefinity as a whole or your main concern is Nolics and actual database design?
    Whould it perform better on a large scale if LINQ to SQL was used instead of Nolics?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Hello Mike Drag,

    Actually 25000 comments are not quite a few comments. However, the problem is related to Nolics queries and the way that data is returned. Also, let's do not forget that there is a counter that additionally slows the request. From 4.0 this problem will be sorted out. 

    Sincerely yours,
